Postcard Mailer- back to school


After we agreed on the "back to school" theme, I began thinking on school scenes and school related situations. A few minutes later, this image popped in my head.

Who doesn't immediately think of a row of bunnies on their way to their first day of school, right? And If you look closely at mama bunny, you'll see why I think I'm projecting a bit ;o)

I also pictured this image as a spread on a book so I thought of adding this text:

One by one they waved good-bye
back to school is always fun!

but then I realized, that even though our postcard is oversized, it wouldn't read well. So I decided not to include the text.

So here they are, from right to left:

Sporty Bobby, Sleepy Bella, shy Ryan, big sis Lucy, baby Timmy and of course Mom and Dad.

Adorable, Ali. I'd love to see you develop this into a picturebook.

I'm the bunny that would be yawning as she walks to school. Great touch!

Awww....... sweet, Ali! Beautiful washes! Love how the sunrise is washing over the landscape and bunnies- like a big warm hug.
